There may always be timber and forest management activity along the route, so proceed with caution. Two sites of known recent activity are just above the lower gate on Old Peak Road and at the top of Shot Pouch Trail Rd about a mile west of the Benton-Lincoln County line.

Remember that you need a Starker Forests permit to pass over the Old Peak Road section between the gate 4 miles up Old Peak Road and the gate at mile post 6 on Woods Creek Road.

HUNTING SEASON AWARENESS:

If you go out during big game hunting seasons, especially the deer and elk seasons, always be alert for hunters, wear appropriate colors, e.g. fluorescent orange, and avoid browns or other dark colors, especially with white.

September is bow hunting season and October and November has rifle seasons for both deer and elk.
